If you have any questions about the dogs posted or pending posts, contact Lyn Hollis at 731-584-6530. It is also a good idea to contact your local rep direct, via their contact information, to introduce yourself.

Please make sure you fill out an adoption form, there is a link under the rescue tab. Once accepted a rep will contact you and ask to do a home visit in preparation for bringing one of these feisty, smart dogs into your home.


Finn is a sweet one-year- old boy who is a “work in progress!” He is looking for a forever home with terrier savvy folks with a good-sized fenced yard to run off his energy, and an owner willing to take him for long walks. Finn rarely stops moving – he has active days and then what we call “extra energy days.” He loves to play ball and fetch. Though he gets along with certain dogs and is very happy to meet new ones on his walks, he did not live well with another dog in his first home, so we think it best he be an only dog for now. Finn needs extra training in learning how to give up things and not to jump all over visitors in his excitement. Also, while he is getting better at it, he still needs to work on his housebreaking. He is very affectionate and loves to travel in the car (safely in his crate!). No kids and no cats, please! We are hoping to place Finn on the East
Coast. If you are interested, please first fill out an application before contacting Judy Pommett at judypommett@mac.com.



Stella is a very cute,very smart young Welshie. She was loved in her first home but just too much for a non terrier savvy family. Stella needs a home with people who know Welshies and the daily task of staying one step ahead. She needs a fenced yard to run around in and another dog she can play with would help. No kids or cats. Stella is in Tennessee so adopter must be able to travel here. Please submit an application if interested (direct your application to Lyn Hollis, from the drop-down list) and contact Lyn Hollis at Hollishaven@aol.com or 731-584-6530.


Hi, I’m Wookie and I am 4 years old! My owners have to find me a new home because kids make me very nervous.  Therefore I need a home where I can relax and not feel like I have to “control the kids”.   I am a very cuddly lap dog, I love toys and tug, and fetch.   I have a few issues that my busy parents have only been able to manage, so I need an experienced owner who can help me get over a couple things.   I’m quite reactive to many things in the kitchen.  Opening the oven, emptying the dishwasher, ripping foil, and changing the bag in the waste can to name a few.  Oh yeah, people splashing in the pool kind of upsets me too, but I hear lots of WT’s like to attack the water!  These issues that I have will require someone who understands the principles of “counter conditioning and desensitization” and does not subscribe to the “show them you are dominant” theory.  That dominance stuff is not a great idea for any dog, but especially those of us who need slow and steady exercises to work us through very real (at least to us) issues.

I do well with other dogs, so that is a plus.   I’m seeing some very famous Veterinary Behaviorist, Dr. Lore Haug, next week,and if someone will follow her recommendations, I believe I can get over these things that upset me so much.

My parents are taking me to see her because they love me, and they want me to go to a home that has the time and patience to work me through this.  My new friend Kathi O’Malley, Associate Certified Dog Behavior

Consultant and WT rescue volunteer, will also work with anyone who adopts me to walk them though Dr. Haug’s protocol!  Now that’s a deal!   Please file an adoption application with Kathi O’Malley, no phone calls or emails please.   Kathi will read all applications and respond.

We prefer to stay in the Houston, Austin, or Dallas area, I cannot fly anywhere due to so many things scaring me, but if someone can drive to meet with Kathi, they will be considered.
